Dates: July 9 – August 6, 2018
Application deadline:

The Amity Summer English Program is a one-month adventure for fluent English speakers to teach rural Chinese middle school English teachers how to develop their listening and speaking skills. These teachers are often the only ones who speak English in their school and have very little opportunity to maintain and improve their skills. As you help provide a three-week English training course you will learn first-hand about China and its people, worship in local churches, experience life with Chinese Christian and help promote cross-cultural dialogue.

Athena, the teacher of 55 grade one students in rural China shares “learning about the traditions and beliefs of Canadians and comparing them to Chinese practices, has shown that we are all similar; we all have the same goal, to share our love of language and to help our students be the best they can be.”

Janice Harper, a 2014 volunteer from Knox Presbyterian Church in Waterloo, ON, says “My own approach to teaching has even changed as a result of our experiences in China, and that is after being a teacher for 32 years!”
